A short featuring the one and only Roxy Acetylene in the Convergence-verse is posted. Its the setting where the song came from :)

Whenever I would write fiction for Roxy Acetylene, my punk rockstar with issues, I have the urge to try and write lyrics for songs of hers. It never really goes well, historically. Her story lasted years but really is pretty done, so I haven't written anything for her since City of Heroes closed down.

 

I've got terrible writers block on something I do want to write, though, so I decided I needed to go back to familiar ground, write things about characters I know very well. So I wrote a small piece about Roxy(which is waiting for input from the owner of the other character involved) and my muse refused to move on to something else unless I tried, again, to write some song lyrics. So I gave in, and this time, I kinda like it. We can discuss the event in my fictionverse called Convergence later, but its a song off an album from that reality called Bad Day off an album called The Straits

 

I cannot sing it, and cannot play instruments, so....you'll have to imagine it kinda yelly-punk style

 

Verse 1

I'm not crazy though it seems that way

You buy me things and I give them away.

Find me gone some days, my phone shoved in a drawer

Other ones you can't even get me out the door

You ask what's going through my head and all I can say….!

 

Chorus

On a bad day, on a bad day, things don't look the same, no!

the hand you offer to help me up

looks the same as the one that shoved me down

locks on the doors don't keep me safe

only shut me in a cage

Its not the way I want it to be

but that's the way it is

On a bad day

 

Verse 2

I don’t have marks but I got scars

Come a long way but it doesn't always seem far

Struck by stage fright, been speechless, to your confusion

Things are better, right, or is it all just illusion?

You don’t understand how I can think that way….!

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

On a good day the past is gone!

On a good day I know I’m strong!

On a good day I feel lucky

that you're still here after all...

But!

 

Chorus

I healed for Satasha and no one died! *cue victory music*

Seriously, its been......a very long time since I tried playing a healer and it was bad times. Thought I'd tiptoe back toward trying it again and I might not be completely incompetent!

So I watched a video where somebody built a skatepark in their house for Wildstar. And they explained you can curve tables. And I remembered the awesome mega slide dimensions from Rift. So now I have a future project. Mwahaha.

So....fine. I'm writing lyrics for a quasi-punk song for an imaginary character I don't even RP anymore that the only music for is vaguely in my head with no way out. Thanks, muse. No really, keep abandoning things other people would actually find interesting for obscure nonsense. *shakes fist*

Alright RPers, opinion time. Which would annoy you more? Someone using a male avatar and OOCly saying ((character is a her, design issues)) or someone OOCly detaling 3/4 things different than the avatar looks like?

I really like the female, even though the male hair is perfect... Choices choices...

You may notice that there is in fact no screenshots from Wildstar posted here with the lifting of the NDA. That, quite honestly, is because I am not yet sure what to do about my characters given the very, very disappointingly shallow character creator.

 

Coming from pretty much any other game, the customization is a giant step backward with its 6 to 8 options for hairstyle and faces, and a letdown even from concept art for the options of draken horns and aurin ears. Limited choices, limited palettes....frankly I was hoping that more would be coming, sold, or unlockable but there has been no real response to the desire for that from Carbine's end sadly.

 

The gameplay is fun, but the best I can do in the creator so far is 'tolerable'. In fact, the best shot of making anything remotely resembling any of my three desired characters is I can make a male Aurin that sort of looks like J. And it really saps my desire to play when my avatar is essentially the 'least bad' of the options.

Writing for old characters is like finding your favorite pair of beatup, torn, stained jeans with the hems coming undone and wearing them again. Sure they a bit dated, and maybe they aren't going to impress anyone anymore, but damnit they are comfy and you still love them.

Welcome to anyone who finds this, post your fiction about your characters or just the world in the forums to share with all, or just lurk and read. Enjoy!
